Ghosts of Gettysburg: Spirits, Apparitions and Haunted Places of the Battlefield[1] is a book by Mark Nesbitt that details the reports of ghostly apparitions in the area where the Battle of Gettysburg took place in July 1863.

Nesbitt first heard stories of ghostly sightings and sounds when he was working as park ranger at Gettysburg National Military Park during the 1970s.[2] Following interviews with other rangers, visitors and employees at Gettysburg College, Nesbitt compiled and published Ghosts of Gettysburg in 1991. Following its success, Nesbitt has since released:
